Homeless and animal shelter donations

Hi there,
I am asking the students to help the other academies with the collection of canned food for the homeless (non perishable thanksgiving type foods or gift cards) and old blankets, or towels or pet food for a local animal shelter. I think it is important that young people learn to help others and this is always a good time of year to make it a teachable moment. If you can reinforce this idea with you child and have them bring in any of the items below before next Wednesday that would be great. It is so appreciated. It would be great if each one of my 220 students brought in only one item. How great would that be!
Happy Thanksgiving to all. May you enjoy the week off (starting in a week!!)
